This is how we stimulated the local economy. And became renowned doing so. –We were just trying to help a few people living nearby, when our effort exploded! This is what happened:
1) Began receiving 10,000 visitors a week to our website.
2) Became #1 News story in our county.
3) Were featured on all major TV News networks.
4) Received Visionary Award for Economic Development
5) Received Congressional Medal of Merit.
6) Received $100,000 in unsolicited funding.
7) Received endorsement from US Labor Dept.
After we did what we did, we learned that the name for it is ‘Cause Marketing.” There were a lot of Armed Forces veterans living in our area. We created a free website for local residents and businesses to hire them. The residents posted chores they wanted help with around their homes and yards. Then we notified the local military. Boom! We had no idea how powerful this simple idea was.
In order to spread our cause, we have written out the exact steps that we took to accomplish this and put them in order. Now we are looking for businesses and organizations that want to do the same thing. We will give you all the help you need. It’s not time consuming or difficult. If we can do it anyone can.
This is not a sales pitch. There is no charge for us to teach you how. All we ask is that you be sincere, willing and able.
